Finding The Right Cosmetics For Teens

Oct 30, 2007
Some children do not wait for their parent's permission to wear cosmetics. Youngsters have a tendency to play in their Mother's make-up case very early in life. When they get older, they can not wait to begin wearing it on a regular basis. Some might have their parent's approval but many will not and instead of waiting for that approval, they will sneak around and wear it on their face while they are at school.

Many young girls just want to experiment with the cosmetics that are chosen for them. Many youngsters are given cosmetics to wear that are considered "play make-up". When they get older, the teens will begin experimenting with cosmetics by trying out some low-priced cosmetics that they find at a discount store. Mascara is one cosmetic that teens use on a regular basis.

Since teens do not have a lot of money to spend on cosmetics, they often come up with alternative sources to supply them with the cosmetics that they need. To save their allowance money, a more popular alternative that teens have found is to borrow a few cosmetics from their Mother. Lipsticks, eyeliner and shadows for the eyes are some of the cosmetics that are easy for a teen to find on sale.

Some parents are very rigid in their rules about when they will allow their teen to wear cosmetics. When a parent feels the time is right, they may limit the cosmetics to the very basics of lipstick and blushers. As they get older, the rules may lessen and the parent might take their teen to a local department store to select some quality cosmetics.

A cosmetics consultant is an excellent way to introduce any teen to the world of cosmetic choices. These consultants can teach the teen about how to match foundations with skin tones and what the correct way would be to apply blushers to the cheeks to achieve a more natural look. Learning to apply cosmetics sparingly will also help the teen to maintain a budget on the money they spend on cosmetics.

Some cosmetics take a lot of practice before they can be worn properly. The new trends in wearing cosmetics have required teens to wear lip liners and lipsticks in a variety of color definitions. Some teens have a lot of fun experimenting with these in front of the mirror in their bathroom at home. When they feel that they have achieved the right look, then they will wear them out of the home in front of their friends.

These can be trying times for a teen. Some feel that wearing cosmetics improperly might affect their social status and hinder their ability to get dates. Great drama is involved when teenagers start wearing make-up, and it's importance escalates incredibly when they begin to go out on dates. Parents can lend a supporting role in this area by making recommendations and complimenting their children when their cosmetics look good.
